Heather McCain is a queer, non-binary, disabled advocate and educator on Disability Justice and ableism. This workshop is an introduction to Disability Justice, an ongoing practice that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and sees us as whole beings with differing strengths and needs. Disability Justice was created by trans, queer, disabled people of colour to center their experiences as people with intersecting identities. It helps us have a better understanding of disability while challenging everyone to address the ways we think about, and label, bodies, minds, and senses. Disability Justice is a community building practice that encourages all to engage with each other and create and explore new ways of doing things.
